You are not going to be able to upgrade a 5 year old computer to the point where it is "awesome". You can't get a Core 2 Duo, you are limited to 2GB DDR RAM, you can't use SATA hard drives, and you only have an AGP slot. If you are really looking for a "maxed out" computer, you are going to have to start from scratch.

Hi there,

Why do you want to upgrade it? How much have you allocated to the upgrade budget?
